WHY HAS IRELAND BECOME SO BAD AT SPORT?

A good question eh?  But, then again maybe we aren’t so bad at sport really?  Maybe in the Celtic Tiger environment that we all live in we just have higher expectations than we used to have?

Allow me to explain.  In the early 90’s we were delighted to beat Malta 2-0 and qualify for a World Cup in soccer.

More recently we’ve been delighted to win a triple crown.  But lets be honest that’s a mickey mouse trophy, especially if you don’t win the 6 Nations with it!

But we’re all richer now and we all expect more.  But face the reality folks.

We will not be in the next European Championships.

We will not win the rugby World Cup

End. Of. Story.
